Transcendence conjectures about periods of modular forms and rational structures on spaces of modular forms
- 87 Downloads
The conjecture is made that the rational structures on spaces of modular forms coming from the rationality of Fourier coefficients and the rationality of periods are not compatible. A consequence would be that ζ(2k-1)/π 2k-1 (ζ(s)=Riemann zeta function;k∈ℕ,k≥2) is irrational or even transcendental.
